Hi there. In some sites there you must expect around 90% of the women to be professional daters. around 30% are already married. Try to locate the women you are corresponding with in social networks such as vkontakte and odnoklassniki. You may be very surprised of what you will find. I have been very careful, but also meet a woman (through another site), who has no other intentions than to get something for herself. Fortunately, I read and talk russian language - this is a huge plus. However, I was surprised to see that dating agencies was hiring women through local newspaper ads - promissing stable salary + presents :-)
I asked my friend, who has been working as a translator (The agencies encurrage women to meet with highly unnatractive - and unrealisitc men in order to share the translation fee between the girl and agency). This is what she told me, and it is the naked truth, and as you can see it is also the menn's own fault (a 60 year old, which want to date a 23 year old supermodel? Well it is bound to go wrong):
"I will explain why it started to be like this ... many old men started to come here with goal to find young women for marriage but they even did not understand it is not really possible to find a girl who will be 30 years younger than them... however they believe in a fairy tales and the fact is they will never give up and will search for 10 years and more... women got gifts from them and more... and women's way of thinking changed.. why not to make money on those who do not want to take the reality as it is... those men who know what they want and who accept reality in an adequate men- they will never believe 20 years girl will want to be with 60 years old men... understand? for many it became like business... it is dirty to say but this is the truth....I also pity those men who do not want to accept this reality and those men whom I know- I always repeat to them to look at it with "healthy" eyes but nobody wants to listen... nobody... it irritates me too and makes me outrageous... but I already gave up to teach or give advices to someone ...
